This gorgeous engagement ring features a custom cut blue opal in the center of a halo of bright cut set diamonds, with additional diamond accents as well as custom hand engraving on the platinum shank below. It was created for a client from Kent, WA, who initially visited our Bellevue, WA showroom in person to discuss his ideas for the piece. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
He had one particular piece he wanted to customize, but he also drew inspiration from several other designs, and our team combined the elements he liked from each to produce this unique piece. He came in again to pick out the rough opal that we then had sent out to be specially cut to fit in the ring.
Opal Center and Diamond Halo
At the top of this ring sits a 2.66 carat cabochon cut blue opal, and it’s prong set in platinum in the center of a bright cut set diamond halo. The opal is a non-traditional choice for the primary position in an engagement ring, and the client knew he wanted it right from the start. Because the specific coloration of opals can vary so widely, we brought in a few options for the client to evaluate so he could pick the one he liked best. Halo Engagement Rings
The stone is roughly square, with a smooth, convex top surface that rises gracefully from the inner margins of the halo. The prongs curl up around these rounded corners, and the halo follows the contours of the stone perfectly. In addition to the diamonds on the top surface of the halo, there are also some bright cut set all the way around on the sides.
Diamond Accents and Hand Engraving
The band is widest at the top where it meets the underside of the halo, and it’s bright cut set with a line of round diamond accents that continue down to the mid-point on either side. These diamonds taper along with the metal they’re set in, and they create a nice connection to the diamonds in the halo at the top.100% Satisfaction
Custom hand engraving in a scroll style covers both ring fronts from the halo down to the middle of the band on each side as well. This brings a classical elegance to the design, and it's a detail that you can easily customize to reflect a pattern or symbol with personal significance to you and your partner.
